Wolverhampton Wanderers’ chief scout addresses Kessie speculation

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ head of recruitment John Marshall has seemingly ruled out a January move for AC Milan dynamo Franck Kessie.

The Ivory Coast international has long been linked with a move to Molineux, but it now looks as if the speculation won’t amount to anything.

Speaking to TMW, he said: “There was an interest [in Kessie over the summer], but never a real negotiation. I don’t think so, we have so many players in midfield.”

Kessie is a player who has previously been likened to Yaya Toure, a player he has admitted to idolising.

The powerhouse midfielder has caught the eye in his two-and-a-bit years at the Rossoneri, adding some much needed mobility and tenacity to the club’s midfield.


TBR’s view – Wolves making a mistake?

Perhaps not moving for Kessie would be an oversight by Wolves.

Currently, Nuno Espirito Santo does not have anybody else like him in his squad.

He doesn’t have any powerful ball-carrier types capable of breaking the lines.

He has technicians like Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho, and Leander Dendoncker who is very much a defensive minded player, but no real driving force.

Wolves look well right now, but they could regret passing up the chance to sign the 22-year-old.
